This is a very scarce pattern made at Sandwich in the 1865-1880 period. As the name suggests, the body is covered in morning glory vines and blossoms, trailing down the stem with leaves on the base.

It is a problematic pattern in that it was reproduced. Since the originals were not in bell-tone flint, we can differentiate only on the points suggested in books such as Barlow/Kaiser and Jenks/Luna/Reilly, which seem ambiguous and contradictory.

This example has very finely detailed molding, with crisply defined leaves with detailed veins and stippling. The vines down the stem are thin and distinct. I feel this is an original example based on these characteristics.

Size: Approximately 3 7/8" high.

Condition: Excellent. No chips, cracks or repairs.

Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, returns are no problem if I happen to miss anything.
